Dear Cambridge City Council,

the justification or rational for charging more than the standard
£9.25 charge by the General Register Office for Copy Certificates?
3 Can people order copy certificates from your council online?
4 Can people order copy certificates from your council to pick up
the same day without extra charge?
5 If Q5 is no please provide the additional cost and the
justification or rational for not allowing same day pick up without
extra charge?
6 Do you provide a verifcation service prior to orders being
placed? E.g. A person will provide you with as much detail as
possible and then you confirm or deny if you hold a register entry
for those details?
7 If applicable is there a charge for a verification service?
8 a How many copy certificates did you provide in 2010/11
b How many copy certificates did you provide in 2009/10
